Spring 2 - Beast Creator

Nature Safari - Minibeast Experience

As a wonderful hook into their 'Beast Creator' topic, Year 5 were lucky enough to experience a virtual meet the minibeasts session, courtesy of Julia at Nature Safari. The 1 hour session was split into two sections. The first half focused on meeting lots of different minibeasts and then the second half was a chance for the children to meet different animals that Julia has. In the session, year 5 met:

  • Henrietta (Hissing Cockroach)
  • Buttons (Giant African Land Snail)
  • Kazabian (Emperor Scorpion)
  • Tex (Mexican Red Knee Tarantula)
  • Hetty (Horsefield Tortoise)
  • Monty (Royal Python)
  • Scar (Bearded Dragon)
  • Obi (Blue Tongue Skink)
  • Lois (Chinchilla)

The children absolutely loved this experience and were so keen to ask and answer many questions and share their own experiences of some of these creatures, with Julia. It was such a fantastic way to hook the children into this fantastic topic and they were so excited to see all of the different animals.
